Until August 1967, Mel Hunter turned out many hundreds of major science and technology related works of art for Life, Newsweek, Time-Life Books, National Geographic, Encyclopedia Americana, North American Aviation, Douglas, Convair, USAF, NASA and many others. During this period, he became perhaps the main painter of subjects relating to science and the budding space exploration program.

At the peak of his career in illustration in 1967, he came to the realization that emphasis on science and technology had grown out of all proportion to the thought devoted to the rest of our daily lives and to the needs of the environment. Nobody in the art world, except for Andrew Wyeth, was speaking for our shrinking rural countryside, our diminishing clean air and water, and vanishing wildlife.

So he came to Vermont to paint the land and its wildlife, creating magnificent works of art in oil paintings and original art graphics, and to write and illustrate books for children on what nature and the Earth are really all about. In the ensuing five years, his paintings, watercolors and original lithographs have sold to many collectors worldwide providing beautiful home decor wall art. More than two hundred original watercolors and oils of birds have sold through the galleries of Abercrombie & Fitch in New York and the Massachusetts Audubon Society.

Mel Hunter passed away in early 2004.
